On July 28, Lt. Col. (P) Walt Yates accepted the charter as the new Marine Corps Systems Command Program Manager for Training Systems at a Change of Charter Ceremony. He replaced acting PM Dan Torgler, who assumed the responsibility in December 2013 when PM Col. Michael Coolican was reassigned to Director, Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate.

Yates previously served as the Modeling & Simulation Project Officer at PM TRASYS, and returns to the Team Orlando community after serving as the Deputy for Modeling & Simulation for the USMC, from Aug. 2011 – July 2013, and then recently at the Office of the Secretary of Defense as a Corporate Fellow. With Yates’ arrival, Torgler resumed his position of Deputy Program Manager.

As the training systems acquisition arm for the Marine Corps, PM TRASYS improves the warfighting effectiveness of the Marine Air-Ground Task Force and globally deployed maritime expeditionary forces by providing training support, and developing and sustaining training systems and devices.
